Clinical phenotyping

Improving clinical decision making by developing new paradigms for patient journey phenotyping

The Clinical Phenotyping Centre (CPC) aims to provide doctors with better information at each stage of a patient's treatment, helping them diagnose illness more efficiently and choose the best treatments based on a patient’s individual metabolic and physiological characteristics. It brings together state-of-the-art metabolic phenotyping capabilities and the integration and correlation of the data with other data sets on the same samples. The facility includes cutting-edge Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (NMR) and Mass Spectrometry (MS) infrastructure, as well as core analytical and project management staff.

The CPC is a core facility of the NIHR Imperial Biomedical Research Centre's (BRC) Institute of Translational Medicine and Therapeutics (ITMAT) funding scheme.  It links closely with the MRC-NIHR National Phenome Centre and with Computational and Systems Medicine within the Department of Surgery and Cancer.
